Hi

The package bittorrent is some command line tool. The description says:
bittorrent - Original BitTorent client - console tools

You better install a different client. Some good ones are:
transmission - standard with Gnome, fairly simple but works nicely.
bittornado-gui - simple client - doesn't use much resources.
ktorrent - if you use KDE (Kubuntu)
azureus/vuze - lots of features, uses Java so it takes a lot of resources.
